Do: The team that cooks together stays together

Cooking classes have always made for an excellent choice when it comes to corporate team building in Sydney, because it builds a sense of collaboration and teamwork. This is an essential part of any team building exercise—if you want your team to stay together, they have to play together and nothing beats the fun of learning how to cook with each other! Whether you're a complete beginner or have some experience, corporate cooking courses welcome everyone to try this relaxing, mindful activity. Your staff will work together to create a delicious meal, with the guidance of a passionate chef so you can all sink your teeth into our Sydney workshops, no matter how many times you’ve picked up a pan. 

The best part about our cooking classes is that at the end of the class, everyone gets to eat a delicious feast around the table. Food brings people closer together, and with your staff breaking the bread they just made, you’ll have them bonding like Remy and Alfredo in Ratatouille! Many of our cooking classes also come with additional extras, so if you feel like making dumplings and cocktails, make sure you contact your local teacher to see if they can offer any special packages for you and your team. This wonderful corporate team activity in Sydney is one for remember for years to come! 

Don't: Head to a fast food restaurant 

Although it has its benefits, getting your office to go through the drive-thru at your local McDonald’s is not a healthy way to motivate your staff. Not everyone wants to eat a burger in the back of a van, and this is a surefire way to zap them of any enthusiasm for your team ideas going forward. If you’re looking for a fun team building cooking class in Sydney, our BBQ and beer workshop is the perfect choice for you. 

Do: Help your team embrace their green thumb at terrarium classes

It would be a very fair statement to say that we love a good terrarium workshop—our office is full of them! Building a terrarium is a unique way to get back in touch with nature, and to work that green thumb your nan was always insisting you need! Terrarium building is an ideal team building activity as it’s been proven to reduce stress, as you unwind, get your hands dirty and learn how to create your own DIY terrarium. 

Throwing a terrarium workshop into the mix may be a good way to spice up your work routine, helping you get to know your team outside the office. If your office also needs a touch of new decor, terrariums are a welcoming dash of green to the office space. Plants in the workplace have found to purify the air of toxins, reduce noise (honestly!) and help everyone feel more relaxed and calm. This is why terrarium building classes is one of our best corporate team building activities in Sydney, where you and your colleagues can even bring back their unique terrarium to the office to admire. For more tips on how to be effective with mental health in the workplace read our article here.

Don't: A veggie patch day is fun but.. 

If you’re thinking of getting the staff together to dig up a veggie patch outside, think again. It may not be the best activity to engage everyone, especially on a hot day. Instead, our indoor plants and pinot class is a much better option for teams, where everyone can spend a relaxing day learning how to take care of indoor plants while sipping on a glass of pinot. Mmm, delicious! 

Do: Head to the great outdoors at photography classes
